Paper Title:
Development of Quick and Safe High Building Escape Method and Machine
  Abstract

With the socio-economic development and increasingly higher buildings, public concern is growing over high-rise fire evacuation issues. Considering the shortcomings of the existing escape device and methods, such as difficult speed adjustment, high demand for escaping skill, difficult unification of speediness and security, poor recycling etc, an integrated speed limited escape method is proposed by analyzing kinetics of high-rise evacuation. On one hand, the escape acceleration is limited by using centrifugal mechanism, on the other, according to the building height and people's weight, the landing speed of people is restricted by controlling the break height and braking force of brakes. The developed escape machine use the micro-controller to monitor the height and speed real-timely, control the brake automatically and start rope recycling mechanism after the landing, which achieves quick and safe escape. The experiment shows that when heavy object weighing around 75kg drops from a height of 14. 6m, the maximum speed reaches 3m/s, the landing speed is less than 0.5m/s and the falling time is within 7.5s, which achieves better escaping effect.
